November 21 , 2020

The Ministry of Agriculture and the German Agency for International Cooperation (GIZ) have signed a 6.8-million-euro joint project agreement to assist agricultural investments. The joint project, termed Support Responsible Agricultural Investments, is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation & Development and the European Union. With this project, local government bodies, private sector players, and communities will receive assistance in managing land resources and 511 commercial agricultural investments with greater efficiency, transparency and inclusiveness, according to the German Embassy in Addis Abeba. The project is also expected to benefit 10,750 marginalised households with regard to access to rural lands in the Amhara, Gambela, and Benishangul-Gumuz regional states. It supports local communities in securing their tenure rights. GIZ is an international enterprise owned by the German government operating with close to 90 offices around the globe, and it supports organisations, public authorities and private businesses in different sectors.
